In macOS Monterey, Apple's bringing a popular tool from iOS to the desktop. Can you guess what it is? That's right — Low Power Mode! With Monterey, Low Power Mode is now an option that you can set to automatically preserve battery life by turning down the screen brightness and system clock speed. When macOS Monterey launches this fall, it will work on all of the best Macs and those noted by Apple specifically.

Apple occasionally offers updates to iOS, iPadOS, watchOS, tvOS, and macOS as closed developer previews or public betas. While the betas contain new features, they also contain pre-release bugs that can prevent the normal use of your iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, Apple TV, or Mac, and are not intended for everyday use on a primary device. That's why we strongly recommend staying away from developer previews unless you need them for software development, and using the public betas with caution. If you depend on your devices, wait for the final release.

How to use Low Power Mode With Battery Power

You must have a MacBook (early 2016 and later) that is running macOS Monterey to use Low Power Mode. To use the feature on your Mac is using battery power, follow these steps:

Launch System Preferences. Choose the Battery pane.
